Video Traffic Giant review with Fergal Downes
32

How an Irish hacky sack champion made $15,000 with Youtube helping people get rid of their cankles

Episode 1

You’re going to really like this interview that I’ve done with Fergal Downes about how he makes money online driving traffic (80%) through Youtube videos. Fergal’s method is so good that it’s been chosen as WSO of the Day on the Warrior Forum.

One of the things that I thought was really smart is how on his Clickbank sites when a person clicks the “Buy now” button they are first taken to an email optin form. In order to even get to the shopping cart they have to put in their email, so even if they don’t buy the product, Fergal can still email market to them. Brilliant!

Stuff mentioned in the show

Video Traffic Giant (affiliate link)- An instructional program about making money with Youtube traffic and lead generation that has made Fergal Downes over $20,000. It was the WSO of the Day on September 20th, 2012.

Mike,
First off, very probing questions, many of which could have been answered with vague responses.
Fergal was not hesitant at all in giving a lot of very good information. As you brought up, the Warrior Forum
does not always showcase the best of internet marketers and internet marketing. You can tell a lot about someone
when you can see and hear them. It was great hearing from a successful internet marketer who is not afraid to share
his “secrets”. Please keep providing quality interviews.

Great content in the video, it seems easy to implement and quick results if only two weeks begin to receive income.

    Cesar,

    I agree…2 weeks is a pretty quick timeframe, especially when I’m used to waiting three months for my niche sites to rank.

Interesting. I think it’s important to diversify away from just SEO/google traffic. This product would be good just for more insight on how to rank in YouTube.

Good interview.

    Jason,

    I agree with you completely. It’s completely fine to make money with authority/niche sites depending on Google traffic, but there’s always the possibility that they’ll be some animal update and the traffic will stop. That’s why it’s a good idea to start diversifying NOW before any Google slapping occurs.

    Youtube traffic is a huge money maker, one that I’m just starting to tap into by putting my videos on Youtube. Even this video is hosted there with a link to mikefrommaine.com…like Pat Flynn says “Be everywhere”.

Pretty smart to get their email address before they buy.
I know there is a plugin which does the opposite but this is such a “duh” moment πŸ™‚

Thanks for the interview guys!

    Ralph,

    It got me thinking about doing the same thing on my Sites For Sale page. Lead collection is so important…much more important that Facebook, Twitter, RSS feeds…in my humble opinion.

      Ralph | Niche Websites - September 21, 2012

      Not really agree on the FB side as that is also a very easy place to send messages / content but Twitter yes.
      RSS.. still a great way but if you have a lot of feeds you kinda get lost.

      Just got this plugin (free download): http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/dreamgrow-scroll-triggered-box/
      Might be something for you as I find your current scroll a bit a annoying when watching the video…
      Just saying.. πŸ™‚

Great interview Mike,

I purchased the WSO yesterday, I am only halfway through all the videos but am blown away by the quality of information provided. I even received an email today from Mike Thompson that he will be adding additional videos to the members page, well worth the investment.

great video indeed. I’ve made money from different sources and I’m recently testing youtube. I heard Fergal said he had a list to make his videos rank higher? is he talking about the back link websites? (Social monkee, etc.) or there is an actual given list? haha!

Reply
    Mike From Maine - September 25, 2012

    Miki,

    I don’t think he uses his list to make his videos rank higher, but he uses it to send offers to the leads he collects from Youtube. I think he uses Social monkee to build links to his videos.

    Fergal downes - September 28, 2012

    Hi,

    I meant that I have a step by step list to follow when uploading my videos and then I have another list of things to do post upload so the video gets to the top of youtube for the selected KW.

    Sorry if I wasn’t clear about that πŸ™‚

    Best wishes,
    Fergal

Good interview Mike and Fergal, keep it up! I just finished the course, I did not even finish the interview before I went and purchased it and then came back to finish the interview.

Review:
To sum up it up, its niche sites but on you tube. A lot of the same principals apply. Fergal does a good job of keeping it simple as if the viewer is new to youtube and online marketing. Now its time for to put it into action so I can get some money coming in while I wait for my handful of niche sites to rank. It is definitely worth the lil money he charges, especially if you can get a $100 a day. Rinse and repeat!

Hey Mike,

Maybe you can forward this to Fergal…

Thanks!

Hey Fergal…

I couldn’t locate a contact page on your Video Giant.

One of your downloads has a VIRUS! I thought
you should know.

Your zip file ‘video traffic giant QVM.zip’
has a ‘W32.Trojan.grn

It’s the ‘ava66.exe’ file that is infected.

This may a a False Positive I’m not sure…
you should check it. A buddy of mine was
freaked out when his virus program revealed
this baby. Malwarebytes did not pick it and
neither did Microsoft Security Essentials, but
Webroot did.

Please email me back so I can let my friend
know when to go back in to the member’s
area and download a clean copy.

Thanks. Steve πŸ™‚
